About this book

In this work, a synthesis of all the techniques required in the exploration and economic evaluation of mineral deposits is provided. Little previous knowledge is assumed and the book is therefore suitable for students of mining and economic geology and of mining engineering. At the same time, the depth of coverage and the wide range of sophisticated evaluation techniques discussed should be of value to the professional geologist and engineer in the minerals industry. The various ways in which deposits can be sampled, and their data represented, are examined systematically before the book turns to a description of the full range of "classical" are reserve techniques, using worked examples throughout. Statistical and geostatistical techniques are reviewed together with the methods available for ore body modelling. Particularly useful is the section on the design and economic evaluation of open-pit operations. The author also presents an overview of the financial aspects of mining operations. The book draws heavily on case histories, the final chapter being devoted entirely to a number of these which cover a wide range of mineral deposits.

The author... writes with evident knowledge of the sometimes difficult professional role of the mine geologist. This is a useful text for a mining geology semester or two, either at senior undergraduate level or as part of a post-graduate professional programme. - Australian Mineral Foundation; This is going to be a very useful book for geologists and other professionals in the mining and mineral extractive industries and a good text for students...everything in this book is relevant... very well illustrated... every mine should have a copy. - Mineralogical Magazine; The strength of this book is that it contains numerous interesting facts, explanations of methods and worked-out examples... The reviews of mining methods are comprehensive... this book is very useful in many respects. - Sedimentary Geology; The book is designed to be suitable for both undergraduate and postgraduate students of mining geology and mining engineering, whilst being of use to those already following a career in the mining industry. - IMM Abstracts
